Shoestring Studio, a co-operative studio and classroom space in Crown Heights, announces opening with Launch Party on August 5th
Shoestring Studio, a membership based artist co-op studio and classroom, will celebrate it’s opening with a launch party on Friday, August 5th from 6-10pm at 640 Classon Avenue, Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Family friendly, there will be complimentary beverages, beer, food and live music. Sponsors include Speedy Romeo and Braven Brewing Company. Visitors will be able to tour the space, meet the instructors, and receive 10% off classes.
Shoestring Studio is a membership-based workspace serving painters, draftsmen, illustrators, and other artists in need of workspace, community, and shared resources. The Studio’s primary mission is to provide affordable, accessible workspace for artists in Crown Heights and the greater Brooklyn area and to create a diverse and accessible program of classes and workshops. Shoestring Studio is a sister space of Shoestring Press, a membership based artist co-operative printmaking press and event space at 663 Classon Avenue.
Shoestring Studio offers a variety of classes in drawing, painting, illustration, and comic book arts, as well as a theory and practice series. In addition, there is a weekly community figure drawing session on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-9, after which artists are invited to stay for a potluck supper. On Sunday afternoons the Studio hosts a community figure painting lab from 4-7.
Shoestring Studio prioritizes experience-based, hands-on learning and provides its students a great deal of independence to choose their own projects—mastering the basics is as important as experimentation. Lessons ramp up quickly: within your first session, expect to cover the fundamentals and start to master the techniques by doing.
